Cook Time

This is a clever way to bake bread in individual portions for a barbeque. It is always great to upcycle and reuse your tin cans too.



For the tin can bread

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill or 2 teaspoons dried dill
  • 1 cup grated tasty cheese
  • 375ml beer


For the tin can bread

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (170°C fan bake). Line 6 clean tin cans with baking paper.
  • Whisk the flour, baking powder, sugar, garlic salt and dill in a large bowl. Mix in the cheese.
  • Slowly add in the beer, mixing until just combined.
  • Divide the mixture evenly between the prepared tin cans.
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
